Not only for babies’ sensitive bums
WaterWipes were developed for newborn baby’s skin which is much more delicate and sensitive than an adult; because of this, WaterWipes are also suitable for:
â˜… Baby’s hands and face.
â˜… Adults’ allergy prone and sensitive skin types.
â˜… Elderly skin care.
â˜… Pet Wipes.
â˜… General body skin care wipes (for camping, hiking, picnic, sports etc).
WaterWipes are stronger, thicker natural baby wipes – made using 50 gsm material
The Story Behind WaterWipes
Creator Edward McCloskey.
‘When our first daughter was born, she suffered with sensitive skin and developed bad nappy rash. I wanted to find out why, so I took a look at the ingredients in the baby wipes we were using. I was shocked to learn just how many chemicals were in them and questioned should we be putting them on her delicate skin?
I thought there had to be a better way so I set about creating a purer and safe alternative. Many years later and after a lot of hard work, testing, and scientific research, the perfect baby wipes, WaterWipes were born. I hope you like them too.’

- Suitable for weaning, teething, and baby’s hands and face
When a baby is born, its skin is much thinner than an adult’s and needs time to develop a protective barrier from allergens.
WaterWipes are a fresh product that contains purified water and a drop of fruit extract and because of this, they are suitable on new born babies’ skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
[Q] WaterWipes’ packs look different. Have you made any changes?
[A] We are transitioning over to a multi-language pack and have updated all multipacks with this new inner packaging. Our packaging material remains the same blend of Polyethylene, commonly known as PE or PET, however, we have updated the printing style to a glossier effect which offers a different finish and feel to our packs.
The quality of our wipes and packaging has not changed. We pride ourselves on making wipes that are safe to use on newborn baby’s skin. WaterWipes still contain 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract and continue to be made in our unique cleanroom environment to ensure we remain the world’s purest baby wipe.
[Q] WaterWipes occasionally come out / dispense more than one wipe at a time. Why?
[A] Previously our wipes dispensed in the same way as other baby wipe brands but WaterWipes don’t contain soaps or chemical lubricants to help with the dispensing of the wipes from the pack, WaterWipes could come out of the pack in clumps occasionally. To solve this, we changed our wipes to non-interfolded. The start of each wipe still lies in the centre each time and should be easy to locate.
[Q] My baby has nappy rash, can I still use WaterWipes?
[A] Yes. WaterWipes are not a cure for nappy rash but WaterWipes doesn’t contain anything that could further irritate your baby’s delicate skin.
[Q] What is GSE (Grapefruit seed extract)?
[A] Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) is a natural skin conditioner. WaterWipes contain 1 part GSE to 1,000 parts water (i.e. 0.1%).
[Q] How do WaterWipes clean?
[A] WaterWipes contain water and grapefruit seed extract. Water is nature’s natural cleanser and moisturiser. Grapefruit seed extract also helps to maintain good skin condition.
